A disgruntled god
Hades is the unlucky god of the underworld in the Disney Studios cartoon Hercules based on the famous Greek mythological character. While the other gods live a good life in Olympus, Hades is relegated to the underworld and is determined to get out one day. A prophetess tells him that this will happen one day but that Hercules, the young son of Zeus, will have to be dead by then. Hades will then send his minions to kill him. They don’t succeed, but they make him half-human anyway, forcing Zeus to abandon him on Earth. Hercules grows up and shows incredible strength without knowing his true origins. Meanwhile, Hades continues to look for every possible way to kill him so that the prophecy is finally fulfilled.
